    Hi All,

    Looking for some advice. I am a complete noob so please keep any advice basic.

    I wanted to root my phone for a game and I was already on NG6 build - so i followed the instructions here:

    I flashed to the old NC5, used towelroot, got phone rooted and then flashed to the NG6 file provided on that link.

    I was able to get the phone properly rooted. Everything is working EXCEPT ->
    and it is quite random, sometimes it does and sometimes not, and it appears to not be specific to what apps I open.

    When the screen is on and then times out to lock instead of locking it will go into a "soft crash".

    It is a really weird reboot. One time I was connected conference call, where I could see my dial-in on the webex. My phone went into this "soft crash, but on the webex I could see that I never disconnected. Sure enough, when the phone came back up and I went to "phone" app, my phone was still connected and I was still on the call without redialing.

    Anyways - any suggestions on how I can get this resolved and still keep root?

    Thank You.

    Hard reset. .here is a little link howSamsung Galaxy S4 Factory Reset Hard Reset: Samsung Galaxy S4 Factory Reset Hard Reset - YouTube
    You will lose your data unless your backed up. Then I would suggest reread the NG6/NC5 post you read earlier and try again.

    Your best bet since the NG6 build random reboots is to use Odin 3.09v and flash the NC5 build back...until there is a resolution to the rebooting issues with the new NG6 update.

    Factory Reset got rid of the random reboots for me on NC6.
